Not everyone likes Brandi Glanville. Sorry, it's just a fact. She, like the classic go-to reality star tagline, is the kind of person you either love or hate. And it seems like right now, a lot of people hate her. A group of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans put together a Change.org petition to have Brandi banned from the show. And although the fans do have some valid points in their well-thought out analysis, OMG, what are you people doing creating a RHOBH petition?!!!!
The petition was initiated by a woman named Lori Chase, and among her complaints about Glanville, she writes, "Brandi Glanville has made repetitive comments in the open media, social media, the actual television show and interviews which are distasteful and offensive to many groups of people. She jokes about racial stereotypes and child molestation among other very serious issues. Her behaviour and words are hurtful, offensive, and repulsive beyond the point of entertainment or good TV." The petition, thus far, has been signed by over 1,000 people.
I'm a fan of Brandi's and don't think she ought to be kicked off of the show, but I do think it's high time she clean up her act a bit. I'm all for dirty and inappropriate humor, but when it starts getting racial or super insensitive (Brandi tweeted, "Some dumb**** just jumped off the 2nd story of the Grove parking structure. If you’re going to try and ruin my movie at least go to the top floor," after a man took his own life), it's time to realize it's not funny, it's just foolish and mean.
I honestly think the most shocking thing about this entire petition situation is the fact that there is a petition situation at all. I mean, if you dislike Brandi that much, there's an easy way to avoid her: Stop watching RHOBH. But on the other hand, maybe the fact that there was a petition created will get Brandi to think before she talks from here on out. #butkindofdoubtit
Do you like Brandi? Do you think she should be kicked off the show?
